Ladybug Valentine: An Angel Message

A sweet, unexpected valentine winged its way to brighten my day.  While standing in line at the checkout at Walgreen's, I noticed a little soft ladybug toy sitting alone on the counter. One-of-a-kind, it seemed oddly out of place.  The little love bug seemed too good to be true.  It felt like my mother's loving hand was reaching through the veil.  I asked the cashier if it was for sale.  He nodded and said with a smile, "Today is a good day for ladybugs.  Isn't there an old saying about when a ladybug lands on your shoulder it's the touch of a loved one?"

I nodded, amazed at this confirmation.  I wanted to share more, but the line was long, people were waiting.  On the way to the car, I read the little ladybug's name on the red heart-shaped tag.  Trixy!  Her birthday is October 13th. 

Happy Valentine's Day to you all.  It's so comforting to know that LOVE never dies, and our loved ones are watching over us always.

Love and joyful blessings,

Rae Karen
